Abraham met twenty one Kitukiro community members and the purpose was to discuss how they are going to start a poultry project as a group.
They first finished savings as they do every Friday that each member saves according to his or her income and that money they give some members soft loans whereby they bring back with small interests.
They are struggling with one member who was having a debts with another lady and they both are in the group. She sent someone to the group saying that let the group borrow her twenty five thousand shillings whereby that money be given to the lady who gave her money and the group did that but she is now saying that she did not send anyone to the group. She brought the twenty five thousand shillings without the interest and the group was fingering out how to handle the situation.
The chairperson Mss Base told the meeting that as a group they want to start a poultry project because as they are saving they need to start something which also can keep them together as the work.
Abraham thanked the group and told them that starting a poultry project as a group it is good but there somethings which needs to look at like where to put chicken coop because most people will have a feeling that they are working for that home where the chicken coop is.
The project needs much attention like giving them food and water and if they want the layers that means they have to be available to pick eggs, keeping them and looking for market.
He told them that so far what he has seen most of the group members leave everything to few members and when the time of sharing comes they want to get equal shares.
He also told them to do research on poultry so that they can get ideas from those already doing it to get a picture how they will proceed.
Then they have to think how much money needed to start the project because they have to know that with poultry you work until chickens start to lay eggs.
They are going to do a research before the next meeting and they will bring the findings to the meeting to discuss.
